Re: Chania post free newspaper in English

I don't know if it's done year round but in summer there's a print version distributed by depositing copies in bulk at various business places. We get them at ApiCorno café in Kalyves.

Re: email and new router problem

For things I don't understand, whether that's a computer, modern car electronics, fixing a dishwasher, defusing a bomb or building a house I call in someone who knows what they're doing. Even if you think you know what you're doing you can make a problem worse (been there; done that). If mistakes do...

Re: Real Estate Agents in Chania area

You could try Alpha Omega in Kalyves. We used then to sell our property about nine years ago and they were the most professional and energetic of the four agents we placed the property with. A friend also sold their property through them about a month or so ago and formed the same opinion, adding kn...

Re: Firefox Quantum Crashes

Just checked my settings and they are as Andrew's. I haven't had any crashes either but, occasionally, if I scroll down to a lower part of page I get overlapping text and photos that show only the top 5mm of the graphic with the rest of the 'picture' blank white space. Reloading the page cures that ...

Re: IKA Renewal Heads Up

We went to Kalyves KEP just before Christmas to ask about IKA book renewals ("Come back in January") and while there asked if our beige permits needed changing for blue. "I don't think so but I'll check" but couldn't contact the right person.... Walked in this a.m. .... a flood ...

Re: IKA Renewal Heads Up

At least, based on your experience, Filippos, it does sound as though KEP can still do the renewal for us providing we have the correct residence document. On our pre-Christmas visit they confirmed that they will accept the IKA books and repeated that assurance today but they can't without the blue...

Re: Official translation - English to Greek

I've used the ELTA service once, about 18 months ago, and the package arrived safely in the UK about five days later. I can't remember the exact figures but first I tried UPS, whom I'd used a couple of times previously, and walked away when they quoted a bit over €120* for standard service and aroun...

Re: Sending a package to the UK

Greengibble now have a shop in the centre of Kalyves which will be easier to find than Litsarda for a stranger to the area. It's probably slightly closer/quicker, too.

Re: Insurance for a British reg van in Crete?

If you succeed in getting the insurance in the first place you'll have the same rigmarole when it comes to renewal. I'd also be concerned if having to make a claim especially if it caused personal injury or worse. I know a self-drive van can't legally be hired here so you can only rent a van along w...
